58 Years Of ‘Independence’ Or ‘In Dependence’ BY DODEYE EBRI

In Breaking News, Columnists

A Land filled with milk and honey
That flows to a ‘gully’
Many toiled, many spoiled
For that milk and honey…

Today that ‘gully’s’ got hands,
Got legs,
Got senses,
It breeds greed and stagnates…

Cries for help
Cries to help
All neglected
The journey’s been nothing but thorny…

Power is now defiant
In the hands of the ‘gully’
Nobody wants to obstruct
Those who do are destruct…

So we pray and hope and talk and preach….

To go back in time
To correct the errors
We will need more than a dime
The many who labored
Need to reset the line

The past toils being a waste…
as it seems
But we yearn for the best

A land filled with milk and honey
Flow beyond the ‘gully’…
